Braden Family Cookbook
SPICY BEEF CHILI Roker
6 – 8 servings
Season meat with salt and pepper. Brown in two or more batches in a large cast iron pot. Remove beef after browned and put on a plate. Add sausage and cook until all broken up and no more pink shows. Add the sausage to the cooked beef.
Add chopped onion to pot, a little more oil if needed, and cook gently until tender, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cumin, paprika, ground sausage and beef and any accumulated juices. Stir and cook for about 1 minute. Add water, tomatoes and their juices, cover and simmer for about 1 hour.
Stir in beans and cook until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt. If not thick enough for you, mash a few of the beans against the side of the pot.
Serve in warmed bowls and top with toppings. I do not recommend serving this w/rice!
